Key stuck in ignition GM vehicles

My key is stuck in the ignition on GM

GM has issued a TSB #05-07-30-021B regarding Key stuck in ignition. The TSB applies to 2004-07 Buick Ranier, 2002-08 Chevrolet Trailblazer,, 2002-08 GMC Envoy, and 2003-04 Oldsmobile Bravada.

The most common cause of the problem is the shifter boot caught in the shifter mechanism. Start by inspecting the shifter boot to see if it is caught in the shifter assembly. If it is, reposition the shifter boot. If the boot is damaged, replace it with a new shifter boot. GM warns NOT to replace the entire shifter mechanism. The problem is only with the boot.
